Premise: Best-selling author and Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert explores emotion and what he calls the human journey to happiness. From the connections with family and friends to the science of emotion, he offers insight into improving relationships and overcoming anxiety and depression. Celebrities like Larry David, Chevy Chase and Katie Couric share personal stories, as do a former soldier, a man who's lost his job, the mother of a misbehaving child, a woman suffering from depression, a lottery winner and a cancer survivor. Everyone faces emotional issues, Gilbert points out, and his goal is to give people more support in dealing with them.
